Brenda Baxter, owner and principal designer of Custom Drapery Designs, accepted a well-deserved honor at this year’s VISION Design and Workroom Competition Awards Gala. CDD earned first place in Decorative Trim and Hardware at this prestigious international design competition.
“I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with amazing clients who allow me the freedom of creative expression. This project began with the client frustrated with the room’s arch angles. The finish custom design softened the various arches with eye catching iron art combined with beautiful flowing silks and trim embellishments,” said Brenda.
This design’s richly flowing drapery begged for the exquisite couture details CDD includes in every project. Brenda chose a tassel braid decorative trim from Brimar along the lead edge. Matching medallion holdbacks and tassel tiebacks pulled the luscious coverings back on either side.
The waterfall of overlapping swags demanded an exquisite top. A custom wrought iron floral accent from Gaby’s Shoppe, an artisan iron company in Dallas, produced the perfect accompaniment to the custom arch cornice board.

This honor, presented and sponsored by Window Fashion VISION magazine, makes CDD’s third recognition from this competition. In 2009, they brought home both first place in Drapery and Trim and the Award of Excellence.
